Determinants of Knowledge of Emergency Contraception in a Socially and Economically Developed states of India: A study of Kerala and Punjab
Abstract: In general contraceptive use has been accepted by the couples in developing countries. However, the major contraceptive adopted was sterilization due to fears about temporary contraceptives like acceptability and knowledge about side effects. However, certain well developed states like Kerala and Punjab were not only using temporary contraception as well as sterilization. Knowledge about Emergency contraception was very high in these two states with two different backgrounds. It is found that social development and economic development has promoted awareness about emergency contraception in these two states respectively. Further, couples who use temporary contraceptives have better awareness about emergency contraception than users of sterilization. Promotion of temporary contraceptives is highly desirable among couples.
